Although we've seen spy shots of BMW's new X6 hybrid in Bavaria, we're new getting images of the vehicle stateside, with South Carolina plates. BMW's powertrain approach for this model is more evolved than the relatively simple stop & start systems that populate most 4-cylinders in Europe. It's a powered with a 4.4-liter engine mated to the two mode hybrid system that BMW co-developed with GM and Daimler. This should be good for a fuel efficiency increase of 20 percent compared to the "normal" version. The window sticker is also undergoing a bit of an increase: it is expected to be over $70,000 when the X6 hybrid arrives in early 2010.
